Your library userID and PIN allows you to search and access all of our electronic resources. Without it, you can't find e-books, articles, streamed video, etc. Your library userID is different from your network and system login.
If you are a full or part time Georgian student, you need your ONEcard first. If you don't have a ONEcard, visit the ONEcard website for the process to upload your photo and get a ONEcard.
Once you have a ONEcard, email them at email@example.com using your Georgian email address and request your library userID.
Now complete the library's form to set up your PIN and we will activate your ID and let you know your PIN.
If you have a ONEcard, just complete the library's form to set up your PIN and we will activate your ID and let you know your PIN.
